Powering Transformation provides an outstanding opportunity for young people to take part in a workshop which will help develop their skills, extend their thinking and raise their academic aspirations.
Powering Transformation is back in a new format! Now taking place in your school, the 2-3 hour workshop will give your Year 7- 8 students an insight into higher education and the world of work, whilst taking part in a problem-solving challenge which focuses on solving social and environmental issues using tech! We have partnered with a wide range of universities to offer this workshop which can take place virtually (with students in school) or in person.
Students will have the chance to engage with Dell mentors and university student ambassadors who will dial in virtually to the workshops, offering them a key insight into both the technology sector and the world of higher education
